Intel CEO Announces New Platforms And Cpus At CES 2006

Intel President and CEO Paul Otellini unveiled two platforms and several content alliances that provide the foundation for new experiences from digital entertainment and wireless laptops

Noting the transformation now underway in entertainment, Otellini introduced the company's new home platform -- Intel(R) Viiv(TM) technology -- and several commitments from top U.S. and international entertainment companies including AOL, DIRECTV, NBC Universal, Turner Broadcasting's GameTap, ESPN, Televisa and Eros. ClickStar announced its first feature film, "10 Items or Less," with a plan for an Internet premiere within weeks of its theatrical release, an industry first. These and other developments will bring millions of songs, movies, programs and games to the PC in 2006.

Intel Viiv technology-based entertainment PCs will help make it easier for families to download, store, view, manage and share all kinds of digital entertainment and information on a choice of TV, PC, laptop and hand-held viewing screens.

Intel(R) Centrino(R) Duo mobile technology improves performance and battery life for the fast-growing wireless laptop market segment. Otellini also introduced the ground-breaking Intel(R) Core(TM) Duo processor -- powerful dual core silicon supporting the Intel Centrino Duo and certain Intel Viiv technology models. The processor is well equipped to deliver performance-per-watt efficiency and sleek designs for entertainment PCs, notebooks and CE-like devices.

"With our new platforms, we're not only boosting wireless computing, but also advancing digital entertainment a few steps closer to effortless," said Otellini. "Just as we enabled exciting new norms with wireless broadband laptops, we're working with computer, CE and entertainment companies to make home entertainment easier. Our unique processors, tailored platform features and joint work with these industries exemplify our push to advance on-demand delivery of movies, TV, music, games and photos to any home on virtually any screen."

New Intel Home and Mobile Platforms

Intel Viiv (rhymes with "five") technology includes a suite of Intel-based hardware and software that, along with Microsoft(1) Windows(1) XP Media Center Edition 2005, offers exciting new entertainment experiences. Based on a choice of powerful Intel(R) Pentium(R) D, Pentium Processor Extreme Edition and Intel Core Duo processors, these PCs will reflect a variety of features, prices and stylish designs -- including "all-in-one" hybrid TVs and book-sized PCs.

PCs based on the platform will have a variety of entertainment options including support for both a minimum of 5.1 or higher surround sound and high-definition video. Systems may also instantly turn on and off with the touch of a button (when enabled, after initial boot) and could be used with TV-like remote controls when included with the system or purchased separately. Intel Viiv technology platforms will include the new Intel(R) 945/955/975 Express Chipset family and Intel PRO/1000 PM or Intel PRO/100 VE/VM network connection.

Later this year, the platform will add features that will simplify the set-up of a home network and the ability to transfer digital content from the PC to other devices.

Otellini also pointed out a number of features that can make Intel(R) Centrino(R) Duo mobile technology the ultimate on-the-go entertainment system. In addition to performance, battery life and wireless connectivity options, systems will be available in a variety of sizes from thin and light laptops to more powerful ones with 17-inch plus widescreens -- and surround sound, enhanced graphics and high-definition TV support depending on the model. The Mobile Intel 945 Express Chipset family and Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG Network Connection also are new.

Intel plans to introduce more than 20 new processors, chipsets and other products this month. Pricing for each varies and processors will be listed by product numbers. For more information, visit
